The 10 best knockouts via a body blow
Head punches can be concussive but body punches, when timed correctly, can end fights in paralyzing -- and just as dramatic -- fashion. Graham Houston recounts his 10 favorite one punch body-blow knockouts.
When we think of great one-punch knockouts, what invariably comes to mind are blows delivered to the chin. There was Rocky Marciano's big right hand crumpling Jersey Joe Walcott; Sugar Ray Robinson's left hook blowing away the supposedly blast-proof Gene Fullmer; Bob Foster's left hook laying out Dick Tiger.
It's hard for someone to knock me out -- never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd get stopped by a body shot.
-- Oscar De La Hoya, on being knocked out courtesy of a punch to the body
